Project Euler - problem 2

The second Project Euler problem was another simple one:

Each new term in the Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two terms. By starting with 1 and 2, the first 10 terms will be:

1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, ...

Find the sum of all the even-valued terms in the sequence which do not exceed four million.

I created a few variables to store the elements in the Fibonacci sequence and worked my way up while summing the total of all the even elements below 4 million:


<?
/******************************************************************
*  ProjectEuler.net  *  Problem 2  *  2010-05-31  *  Martin Caine *
******************************************************************/

$total 0;

// store 3 numbers in the sequence
$first 0;
$second 1;
$third 2;

// while the last element is less than or equal to 4 million
while( $third <= 4000000 )
{
  
// check for even-ness and add to total
  
if( ($third/2) == (int)($third/2) )
  {
    
$total += $third;
  }
  
// calculate the next numbers int he sequence
  
$first $second;
  
$second $third;
  
$third $first+$second;
}

echo 
$total;

?>
